Additional information about Ouch! Your Silence Hurts

Do you ever stand by silently when you feel you should speak up?If so, your silence hurts. Many people say they want to speak up when they see others stereotyped, disrespected, or demeaned. But they stand by silently because of discomfort or the fear of saying the wrong thing. They may turn away thinking “who am I to get involved, this isn’t my business.” In fact, as a bystander, you ARE part of the conversation. You are the audience. Your silence allows the disrespectful behavior to continue.

Ouch! Your Silence Hurts…. challenges viewers by asking, “How will you personally respond next time you witness somebody being treated with disrespect?” In the Ouch! video, you’ll hear about the role of the silent bystander: When you hear a disrespectful comment or joke, you have a choice: Reinforce it by laughing or joining in. Tolerate it by saying nothing, which is what most people do. Or speak up and become an ally, the hardest thing of all.

You may think that by saying nothing you’re making things better, or at least not making things worse. But sometimes silence is not golden. Your silence sends a message that you agree, or at the least you don’t object. Is that the message you want to send?
